When it comes to local storage auctions, what you see is not always what you get. Sometimes this works out for the better, such as when you inherit somebody’s “junk” only to find it’s full of precious heirlooms and valuable antiques that you turn around for serious cash. It can also turn the other way and end up in massive disappointment, such as when you big hard and fast for a big unit you see real potential in, only to find out later that the tools don’t work, the furniture is all busted up and none of the electronics will turn on.
Welcome to the Storage Auctions Experts forums. These forums are designed to offer everyone involved with local storage auctions a place to come together and share information. Whether you’re a newbie auction attendee trying to learn more about supplementing your income with storage auctions, or you’re a property manager looking to make your next auction run more smoothly, these storage auctions expert forums are for you.

Hawaii storage auctions are becoming more and more popular weekend destinations for locals that are looking to cash in on repossessed storage lockers. Recently in Kailua Kona we’ve seen big units full of valuable tools, vacationer’s lockers left on the island and neglected and plenty of forgotten electronics. Locals have been showing up with just a couple extra bucks, ranging from $90 to $300 and walking away with profitable repossessed storage lockers.
A lot of newcomer storage auction hunters often ask me about the availability of vehicles being stored. Is it possible to win a delinquent tenant’s car at public storage auction? In short, yes it is! Plenty of auction hunters have had great success buying up the vehicles left by delinquent tenants at public auctions and re-selling them for big profits.
But what about boats? Even veteran storage auction attendees are guilty of overlooking a fantastic market with potential for serious profits. Continue reading “Capitalizing on Boat Storage”
One thing that takes many storage auction attendees a while to figure out is that, just as with books, people and cars, what you see isn’t always what you get. Our natural tendency is to assume that the biggest units mean the biggest profits – after all, wouldn’t you rather 300 square feet of stuff for your money rather than only 100 square feet? Maybe. But the fact of the matter is that, in the world of storage unit auctions, it’s not always the case that bigger is better.
In fact, nabbing that 10×30 unit for $300 more might have accomplished nothing more than saddling you with 300 square feet of worthless trash, dirty stinky clothes and a massive headache – now that you’re responsible to the storage facility to remove all of this garbage!

There’s a common mistake made by many new storage auctions attendees. It’s an easy mistake to make and completely understandable. New storage auction attendees show up with a wad of cash in their pocket and expect to strike it rich on their first go. Now, while this enthusiasm is great and while it’s a major part of what makes this industry so exciting, it’s also the best way to lose your money upfront without achieving any major return.
Scout it out first! That’s right. Show up to as many storage unit auctions as you can in the first couple of weeks so you can get a good solid feel for the operations and processes that you’ll encounter when it comes time to start bidding with your hard earned cash. For one thing, many people that are new to storage unit auctions underestimate exactly how frenzied and quick the entire auction process can be.
It’s frenzied and fast for a reason! Continue reading “Scouting it Out”

It’s important to remind yourself, before you attend a storage auction, that it’s very easy to get caught up in the excitement of the auction and the inevitable bidding wars that will occur. However, the key to making storage auctions profitable for yourself is to decide ahead of time exactly how much money you’re willing to budget for investing into storage units you think contain valuables.
If you set your investment budget ahead of time, and only bring that much cash with you Continue reading “Keep Your Cool At Storage Auctions”
